Washi Tape DIY

Wow... time sure flies! I am so sorry for being missing in action. So much has happened and it's not that I haven't been creating (well maybe not as much) it's just life has taken over. I did finally complete my Brave Girls Soul Restoration 1 and have pics to share soon, and have started SR2! So love these classes!

Well enough about that :)

I don't know about you but I have totally jumped on the washi tape band wagon! And why not? You can do so much with it! But until recently I didn't want to splurge on an online order as for me they are hard to find around here. So I thought I would try my hand at making my own.

Supplies you will need to gather:
- double sided tape
- tissue paper, napkins and/or sewing patterns (will be showing you how to use tissue paper)
- good scissors
- bone folder or fingers

I had bought some pretty teal colored napkins for a party and new that I had to use them in some projects. So find some pretty napkins and carefully separate the layers of the napkins. Mine had three layers. They are pretty easy to separate once you get a corner going.

Once you have separated the layers (usually you will have one printed and a few white or plain colours) lay the pattern side down on a flat surface.

Cut some pieces of double sided tape and lay down on the back side of the tissue. Using your finger or a bone folder smooth out the tape.

Using your scissors, cut around the tape. Peel the backing off and have fun!

So easy and the possibilities are endless.

Will post more soon! :) xox
